Best crawfish, but it is a bit pricey. Definitely try the Royal Reds shrimp. Boiled shrimp are really good.

I had a shrimp sandwich on a bun, rather than a po-boy. There are generous with the shrimp. It was very good. Also had a cup of chicken/sausage gumbo. It was a little salty, but it didn't stop me from eating it. My husband had a crab cake po boy. He liked it, but had eaten better.

When you live twenty minutes away, it's not an easy fix. Tonight my husband and son ordered Dungeness crabs. When they first came out, parts... More

This restaurant was a pleasant place with great service. We split 1/2 dozen blue crabs (3 each) and 1 pound boiled shrimp. The crabs and shrimp were tasty although not exceptional. The problem was that the crabs were 33.00 for 6 and the shrimp are 15.00 per pound. With 2 beers and 1 diet coke with tip we dropped 75.00.... More
